One of the great things about the Dead is the fact that they are old school. Therefore, Analog first, Digital next, for preservation.

If they could reason to release these transfers on a medium other than HDCD, they would. Their core audience / demographic is somewhere @ 45 - 70. This is not necessarily the i-pod generation and unfortunately, 24/192 reel to reel is too exotic these days.

Crunching these Masters down to an I-Pod lossless format is limiting.

Why not press out a thousand copies of 180 gram vinyl for the Marin "Mercedes" crowd?
